My son has been in this school for the last four years. He loves the teachers and is eager to learn. This schools has very experience teachers. Teachers here allow children to be creative and encourage them to express themselves. I love that they involve the parents in creating new programs for their children. The school gives you a great sense of community. I also like that the school provides a variety of extracurricular activities including the Young People Chorus at Washington Heights. The school is also very diverse which is a plus. This is by far the best school in Washington Heights-Inwood.
